HC Deb 19 December 1932 vol 273 c761W

asked the Home Secretary if he will consider the advisability of amending the Aliens Act, which deprives a British woman of her nationality on her marriage to a foreigner, seeing that a foreign woman who marries an Englishman obtains all the liberties of an English-born woman?


The question of amending the British Nationality and Status of Aliens Act as it affects the nationality of married women has been engaging the attention of His Majesty's Government for a considerable time. I am not in a position to make any statement in the matter beyond saying that any amendment of the law would have to be made in agreement with the Dominions.
